Storyline

The horrified Orville crew finds itself captured by the Kaylons, who control the ship and set course to Earth, intending to force them to help overpower the Federation forces and exterminate life there. An escape attempt fails, but provides just enough cover for Gordon and Kelly to escape in a small craft and set course to the neighboring Krills. While the Kaylons see trough a hidden message to warn earth and a passing spaceship is destroyed, the escapees must convince their most suspicious rivals the Kaylons plan to eradicate biological life is worth joining force. Meanwhile human appeals to Isaac's alleged emotions renders him suspicious to his own Primary (leader). Written by KGF Vissers

Jaw Dropping Sci-Fi that lands a spot amongst legends
1 March 2019 | by jakecummins2013See all my reviews

The Orville is a continually impressive show that solidifies itself as a Sci-Fi power house with this episode. The jaw dropping finale to this 2-part episode is breathtaking. Whilst paying homage to Star Trek and Star Wars this show manages to find its own roots among the genre and is a must see for any Sci-Fi fans (and even those who may not be). This episode was suspenseful, wonderful paced, impeccably crafted and is a masterpiece in television. I can't wait for more Orville.
